I am a Danish director from Copenhagen based in New York. I finished film school in Cape Town, in 2006, majoring in documentary film. I have worked within that field since directing and shooting documentaries of various lengths for TV, cinema and web so far on 4 different continents.
I created and shot a documentary show for Danish broadcast DR’s web platform Pirat TV called “Under Copenhagen” released in 2011. My feature doc Songs For Alexis premiered in Toronto at HOT DOCS in 2014 and traveled festivals worldwide the next years. I created the TV show TWIZ AND TUCK in 2015 which premiered on VICELAND in March 2017. My most recent feature doc “BOBBI JENE” premiered at TriBeCa Film Festival 2017 where it won all awards in its category, including best Documentary feature. It was released in cinema later that year in US, Sweden and Denmark.
Although making documentaries are my primary love I cross over and have random but passionate affairs with fiction from time to time.
